The place of punishment and prisons in a justice system based on restorative justice is an important issue in the future restorative justice development. The author opens the debate by elaborating on the contradictory views and opinions of numerous 'restorativists'. She gradually moves towards a clearer image of the use of punishment in a restorative context, and highlights some implications on the prison system.
